It's probably safe to say we've all sped on Brady street at least once. When I first moved here I did, and then I got a ticket from the speed cameras. So I stopped going as fast. I now go the speed limit, or about 3 to 5 over.

Still I find myself feeling like I'm doing something wrong since people are zipping by me. It makes me feel like I'm a grandma going 10 under, but no I'm just going the speed limit.

Clearly other people have noticed too since there are now signs up directly telling us to slow down. They are kinda hard to miss.


There are also signs up that are hand drawn by kids which also adds to the guilt of speeding.

Honestly I know what it's like to be in a hurry, but those Brady street tickets are no joke, mine was almost $150! They also will put cars out with cameras to catch you. So just a heads up, they have ways of getting you that ticket for speeding.

I plan on going the speed limit from now on for people's safety, and to avoid getting a ticket. People will still speed, and that's fair we all get into a rush, or find ourselves running late. Just know that you may find a ticket in the mail.

If you ever see a car going the speed limit in the right lane please don't be mad at them, they may just be trying to avoid a ticket. I for one will be staying out of the left lanes of Brady from now on. Good luck out there speeders I hope you get to your spot on time!

Hotel Davenport Demolition

The Hotel Davenport is located at 5202 Brady St. and was reportedly built in the early 1970s. Earlier this year it was decided that this hotel was no longer set to have guests.

According to the Quad Cities times, the Davenport hotel has faced a number of fires, along with safety and health code violations. This has led to the call for its demolition. I've driven past it many times and have seen that the building had clearly began to deteriorate.

It was scheduled for demolition earlier this year, and said demolition began in April. Many involved in this project are excited to see what the future holds for this lot in Davenport.

I drive past this spot every day for work, and over the last month have snagged some pictures of the demolition.
